We’re not sure what the guy was thinking. But if you’re a truck driver, who decides to go AWOL while on the job, make sure you don’t have A NASA-funded telescope in the trailer of your rig.
The man was supposed to drive the telescope from Minnesota to East Texas and drop it off Monday, but the driver, the trailer, and the telescope never showed up. So, the trucking company tracked the guy down using GPS, and Hutchins Police finally found the driver Wednesday morning at a Dallas truck stop.
The trailer and undamaged cargo were found later that night. No harm, no foul, right? Nope! The driver was fired and police have launched an auto theft investigation. Guess that’ll teach him to steal from a company with multiple sets of eyes in the sky.
